I think its becoming more clear to me that the Devils are banking on putting one or both of Mogilny and Malakhov on long term IR. I say this primarily because of Lou's contant statements of him expecting Malakhov and Mogilny to compete for a position in camp. We all know that Mogilny's Hip probably wont hold up.
I don't know if this is going to work, but it appears that this is the strategy, or at least part of it.
If Mogilny can bring cap relief with an injury replacement and McGillis is sent down on September 30, that is a clearing of 5.7 Million, before opening day....If the quotes of 46.5M cap number are correct and Mogilny brings any sort of IR cap relief that brings the Devils down to 40.8 along with McGillis being sent down, which would seem to be adequet to sign Gionta, Martin and Hale....Or least pretty darn close (probably need another 1Million).
Like I said, don't know if this going to work.....But the fact that Daly has mentioned/questioned where the Mogilny injury took place(whether is was an AHL injury or not) and secondly the fact that Lou keeps mentioning Mogilny will be expected in Camp....It seems pretty clear where the Devils organization is going with this.
